Sewall Wright taught throughout his long career. Between 1926-1955, he worked at the University of Chicago. During this time, he developed and taught both undergraduate and graduate courses. By the early 1930s, Wright’s teaching load settled into a core set of four courses: Fundamental Genetics (Zoology 310), Biometry (311), Physiological Genetics (312), and Evolution (313). These lecture notes derive from Wright’s taught course at University of Chicago, Evolution (Zoology 313), which he presented in June-August 1951. In addition to lecture notes, this volume includes three population genetics exercises, Sloan’s research paper for the course, and Wright’s final examination. This volume is x+116 pages, 8.5″ x 11″.
Robert E. Sloan was a master’s student with an interest in paleontology and evolution when he wrote these notes while attending three of Wright’s core courses during 1951-1952. For more on Robert E. Sloan, see his oral history (link).
